Jeremy Meade of J.meade.images self-taught photographer who has been practicing the craft since the age of 16.
If we are interested in online or in print publication, we will email as soon as we can. What is the traditional art form or craft that you do? Portrait, abandoned, landscape, and long exposure photography
How do you respond to criticism? I love CC because it helps me learn the things I can work on and make better for me and for my clients and people that enjoy my work.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced in your creative career? Finding the funding to have good equipment, paying for talent, and traveling across the US.
What creatives do you admire? I admire those that can come up with great and original ideas and perfectly complete those ideas. With scenes, makeup, wardrobe, getting the shots, and having it all together in post.
What are some of the projects you’re working on right now? I have a few ideas brewing in the portrait part of my photography but the ones I’m working to have done are those that acquire access to certain abandoned properties.
What is your favorite thing about your craft that you enjoy the most? Working with great and artistically minded people. I love meeting people and sharing ideas that create that idea into a mutual artistic vision.
What is the best advice that you have been given? Learn your equipment. Shoot as many shots as you can. Never give up because you may be in a slump and then all of a sudden and idea might come from nowhere and be perfect.
What do you do to get into your creative zone? Music helps. Films, and talking with the people I work with that get my creative mind flowing. Not only do I do model work I also do family portraits, senior/school portraits, I sell prints of my abandoned and nature work.
